Kudos for the below reviewer who looked these up. This was an enjoyable reel for the most part. Obviously the filmmaker wanted to make a bit of a "Our Town" thing (in between shots of his family?) and somewhat fails with his darkish attempts. Still, some lovely shots of small town life on display here.

Waterloo, Indiana early 1950s
These home movies were taken in Waterloo Indiana during the early 1950s (googled a few cars & businesses shown). Scenes include: a crowd at a water ski show; shots in and around local businesses such as Waterloo Appliances, D & D Restaurant & Skelley gas station, a Texaco station, a Stardard White Crown gas station, Henderson & Kegin Plumbing & Heating, Dunn's Dairy Bar, and others; and some local residents. There is also some aerial footage which is almost too dark to make out, & footage of a small plane on the ground.
